Re: Wiring diagram house/starter bank needed

- Xantrex inverter/charger TR1512 (powered from shorepower or a Honda 2000i generator, this connection to the housebank is also done and seems to work fine)
- 38HP diesel engine, alternator running through a Heart Interface Incharge 3 stage alternator regulator
- an electric switch to disconnect the alternator
I assume what is recommended is a 1-2-both switch to isolate the house bank from the starter battery so the engine could be started with either the starter battery, house bank, or both.
I would simply lose the windlass battery and run the windlass and other loads off the house bank. If you do that there are many possible ways to wire it. It can be done, with three banks, but I'd like to hear your reasoning behind why you want to have to manage and wire up three banks..
